Pours straw-yellow with a bright white head that drops fairly quickly. The aroma is that of grain and some breadiness, along with faint hops. The flavor is bready malt with a strong hop bitterness. The finish is quite dry.
Pours a clear golden color with a soapy white head. Taste is toasted grains, honey nut cheerios, catty hops, earth and some light sweetness. Nice beer closey22 (2101) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2015

Keg at Jake’s Place. Pours clear golden yellow, nose is grassy, floral, taste is similar, cold. ganache (6057) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle marked 05/08/14, a screw-top that broke and shattered glass. Smell slightly stale but not skunked, plenty of grass, citrus, nice and naturally juicy, noble. Pours lightly hazy yellow-golden with abundant carbonation and a lightly leggy, soapy white head. Taste crisp and dry, lightly woody, quenching bready bitterness cranks up to medium, and everything nice and soft. Medium body but the carbonation makes it seem fuller, citrus backs off to merely content itself, aftertaste is stale but the overall effect is refreshing.

Bottle in Otto. Light golden yellow, long lasting white head. Quite a crisp, dry, hoppy, bitter lager with a long finish. Very quenching and moreish. A very well made lager. If I were fretting about styles I’d put this half way between a German and a Bohemian pils - not quite enough malt body or richness to be Bohemian, but more austere. Anyway, it’s good stuff and I had another, which I really didn’t think I would when I ordered! superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, bottled on 5/29/2014. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and herbal earthiness. Good amount of earthy herbal/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, pepper, pine, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean in flavor as well with minimal yeast ester presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Czech pilsener style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
